BIRMINGHAM, ALA. (WJTV) – The head coaches and sports information directors in the SWAC tabbed Alcorn State as the favorite in the conference’s East Division while ranking Jackson State second and Mississippi Valley State last.
The Braves are the defending conference champions while the Tigers and Delta Devils try to bounce back from losing seasons.
The teams had plenty of representatives on the 2015 Preseason All-SWAC Team. Alcorn State had nine players named to the first and second teams, while Jackson State had six and Mississippi Valley State had three. Alcorn State senior quarterback John Gibbs Jr. was also chosen as the SWAC Preseason Offensive Player of the Year.
News Channel 12 sports director TJ Werre reports from SWAC Media Day on how the teams don’t pay much attention to the predictions.
